Yeah, I'm hearing it only works sometimes. For me, still more worse than better so far. I'll give it a little longer, got my appointment with the doc next week to review. Yes, there's a good chance I'll be getting the same in my back, too. I'm rather more hesitant given how things have gone so far with my shoulder.
Oh dear, that's a lot of tests. I have a funny feeling my current doctor will be going through the alphabet, too. Oh boy, that's gonna be fun! I see your point re the breathlessness. Sure you have it, but why? Let's hope some answers will be forthcoming, soon. You'll be powering through those e-books.
I'm glad the chair helps you. I guess I could use a hot water bottle for my back (it would be too annoying to keep it on my shoulder), though I can't say the idea is madly appealing while the weather is over 30 degrees. I don't often take pain meds, actually. Only for headaches, now there is an intollerable pain. Shoulder and back suck but don't have quite the same impact on just existing. I grin and bear it mostly.
Yeah, I certainly don't want to go the worker's comp route. I don't think I'll be up for too much expense except maybe a specialist visit or two. I just want to settle this ongoing pain down, it's really damn annoying. The stress of proving things, too hard basket. Glad you had helpful people on your side.
Makes sense about pre-existing conditions.
Thanks. Ultimately it comes down to "If I don't swim, I sink". No thanks. It's bad enough without actively working against myself.
I haven't actually watched the new X-Files episodes yet. I kinda want to re-watch the originals first. I have the box set my brother gave me ages ago. I made the mistake of wanting to watch it with my partner, who refuses to jump between different series, so the momentous task of finishing Star Trek comes first. There are many, many episodes of Star Trek.
Don't even start me on the US political fiasco. Those guys are in such a mess.
Okay, spasm free is a good start. Fingers crossed for positives to come.
My partner is slowly but consistently improving. Struggling somewhat with depression/trauma post-surgery with something so major, but we are working together to improve that for him. He does like Tom Waits, and likes the idea of X-Files. After we finish Star Trek, haha.
Haha, regards accepted. I see why you keep that gate shut.
Thanks. Doing my best, as always. One slow, dogged step at a time. Kind thoughts to you.
